Austrian girl belongs to IS killed in Syria


Vianna (Austria): One of the two teenage girls who fled Austria to fight for the side of Islamic State militants in Syria are believed to have been killed.
Samra Kesinovic (16) and her friend Sabina Selimovic (15) were vanished from their homes in Austrian capital Vienna about six months back. They then posted their images with Kalashnikov rifles and in some cases surrounded by armed men.
According to police sources the parents of the girl are of the belief that their daughter would have been killed in the fighting.
This news was come just two days after IS posted shocking footage online showing the brutal beheading of British aid worker, David Haines.
The executioner is thought to be Jihadi John who had threatened to kill a second British hostage, Alan Henning, 47, from Manchester. This incident has developed an international opinion to fight against IS militants.
It is also believed that the pair would have encouraged another pair of teenage girls from Austria, to flee and take part in the holy war.
Interpol had been searching the girls since April this year. The parents of both Samra and Sabina who moved to make new lives for themselves in Austria were originally from Bosnia.
After meeting people on the internet and attending a nearby mosque, the two girls were persuaded to leave the country.
Police managed to track them at the Turkish border and believed that they might have went by car into the war zone where they got married to extremists and then sent out to fight. They were regularly posted status updates on social media from Syria.
